If the claim is processed via MCS EC and the fee can be paid immediately, the technician
who does the final sign-off on the MCS EC trigger should FIN (files in) the representative
fee ACR after verifying that the fee has been set for payment on the Single Payment
System (SPS). For MCS EC award processing, see GN 03940.020E.
If SPS cannot pay the fee automatically (due to multiple representatives or any other
reason), the PC decisionmaker sends the representative fee ACR to the Benefit Authorizer
The BA sends the representative fee ACR to FIN after completing the action to pay
If the claim processed by MCS and the total fee cannot be set immediately, due to
pending development issue(s) or a delayed auxiliary claimant that could affect the
fee amount, or it is now a fee petition case, route the representative fee ACR to
the DHF PAY location in PCACS.
